Hey there, I'm Serena; I'm diagnosed with ADHD, I like photoshopping my cat onto comics, and I'm the founder of NeurodiverCity! When you sign up for a Zoom life coaching or consultation session, I'll be there to facilitate the first meetings and introduce you to your mentor. I'll also check in periodically with the two of you to make sure everything is going well :) If you're a neurodiverse or suspected-neurodiverse student, you can also sign up for texting mentorships with me—I'll try my best to answer your questions and I promise promise I don't judge! The cat is included in the mentorship too :D
Hi!! My name is Richie (he/him), and I've been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and Dyslexia :) I'm seventeen, and a Junior in High School. I am considered a late-diagnosis as I was diagnosed with Autism at 13, ADHD at 12, and Dyslexia at 14, so I totally understand the frustrations with not being diagnosed yet. I plan to go into Psychology, but I'm not sure whether I want to be a psychiatrist or a research psychologist yet! I'm very passionate about neurodivergence acceptance, and want to encourage the journey to embracing ourselves as much as I can. I'm also a transgender gay male, and I'm very interested in the interconnection between Autism and gender identity :)

Q: If I signed up for the texting mentorship, am I allowed to text my mentor whenever, or is there a specified time when we both talk?
A: You are allowed to text your mentor whenever, and they will respond to the best of their ability ASAP!
Q: What's the difference between a peer mentorship and life coaching/psychologist mentoring?
A: (courtesy of Jasmine Lunia, peer mentor) A student mentorship differs from an adult mentor in that the mentor has experienced a lot of the same struggles quite recently and can better sympathize, provide support, and our own advice!
Q: I'm not formally diagnosed with a neurodiverse condition. Am I still eligible for this program?
A: Yes! We welcome all students with self-suspected or formally diagnosed neurodiverse conditions and mental health conditions!
Q: How often will live sessions be?
A: According to your needs and your schedule! We can offer sessions once weekly, once every two weeks, or once every month. Our team is flexible and we'll always try our best to adapt to your needs. :)
